If you have any trees located near electric lines on your property that you have questions about work to be done, or want information about the availability of free wood chips, please call Public Works.

GLOW Lighted Parade


Great Ladies of Waterloo (GLOW) will be hosting its third annual lighted holiday parade as part of Christmas on the Square weekend. The parade will be held on Saturday, November 29th at 5:30p.m. The parade will use the same route as the Porta Westfalica parade. If you’d like to enter a float, download the entry form from the GLOW website. Come out, bring the kids, enjoy the parade and take home lots of candy given out from the floats. Then, visit the SPPCS gym for a delicious Chili Dinner, held by the SPPCS Booster Club and find out if your favorite float won an award! Santa will be there, along with several activities for the kids!
